Notorious Monsters Information QuestionFollow

This is a question that has been bugging me pretty much sinse NMs were added. I am wanting to know exactly how NMs work. Do they just pop in locations like FFXI NMs and high rank characters just seek them out and kill them? Are they tied into leves that need to be accepted and then carried out? Also, what are the rewards for downing them exactly, I would assume gear, but where can I find this information. I've looked and I can't seem to get any info on what the specifics are. A simple link to where/how everyone else gets this info would suffice I suppose, or a straight up reply explaining would also be nice =)

I do appologize if this is an annoying question and the info is easly found and I'm just not looking in the right place.

Thanks in advance =D

Yes and Yes. Some are open world NMs that spawn randomly or based on a timer. Others are NMs that are triggered by doing a Guildleve. Then you have NMs that pop with/assist the main NMs, such as the goblin braggadocio. Also, you've got NMs that aren't so much a real NM, but carry the "Impossible to Gauge" tag --Mission monsters and such.


Here is a list of all known NMs in the game so far. Or at least, all known mobs that carry the Impossible to Gauge con.

Hmm, interesting. I notice that only Deadeyes is linked to a Leve (I assume the other two new NMs are aswell). So there are no direct gear drops of course (I notice the mats for some gear though) but do the leves associated with killing the NMs award gear or some form of credit that is only attainable by completeing the leve? I guess what I am asking is what incentive do R50 players have to complete these leves and kill the NMs? I ask this because as I am climbing the ranks this is the only thing I know of that I am looking forward to in terms of "End Game" content (I find myself smileing using that phrase related to FFXIV lol).
